You are the ticketing operator, ticketing platform or payment service representative
and you’d like to meet several hundred of your customers and partners at one event; find out their "pains" and future plans; find new niches for your business; find qualified employees; find out who will be bought first and who will be forced out of the market soon.
You are the sports, cultural or musical events organizer
and you’d like to understand how to predict sales and “not fly into the red”; how to create a “funnel” of customers on your event; what is more profitable - to sell by yourself or via operators; how dynamic pricing affects sales and how some still achieve sold out.
You are the concert hall or multifunctional complex representative
and you’d like to make the scheme of the hall quickly and in the most accurate way; to know how to organize the effective work of the ticketing table and to find specialists; how to make your own successful events.
You are the cultural institution representative (theatre, philharmonic hall, etc.)
and you’d like to understand how to organize the correct work of the ticketing table and to work effectively with ticketing operators; how to create a loyal community; how to find a balance between online and offline sales; what to do with tickets refund and how to spend the “Year of the Theater” in a most effective way.
You are the sports club, Federation or League representative
and you are interested in sold out not only for the top teams matches but also for the “common” ones, in the accurate forecast of the arena’s occupancy, in the correct allocation of season tickets quotas; want to learn how to work with corporate clients.
You are the access control systems, software, equipment and ticketing management materials producer
and you’d like to show your developments and technological solutions to the target audience, make a presentation of your products to potential customers, evaluate competitors ' offers and current market demands.

The Forum will host an award in the field of ticketing solutions and technologies — MOSCOW TICKETING AWARDS.
Such kind of events are incredibly important, no matter where in the world they occur. It is very important for the industry representatives to have the opportunity to discuss current problems, to have the dialogue without the sense of competition, but from the point of view of the investment into the industry. International participation is a very important part of such events. The big audience and subject matters, the high level of the discussing issue, the ways of development and promotion – that’s what you will find here.
Forum is the meeting place that is necessary. And the Forum works well on it, because people come back and new people come to the event. There is the exchange of viewpoints, the opportunity to sum up the results of the year, to talk about the prospects.
The Forum is the platform for enriching teamwork globally. Therefore, I think that it is very useful to participate in the Forum: on one hand, it has a positive impact on colleagues, and on the other hand, it creates an image for us as market participants.
It is very interesting to participate in this Forum as the potential of the Russian market in the sale of tickets is growing, and especially it is being felt the last two years. It is important to share our experience and learn from the experience of the Russian market. This event is very unifying.
I am grateful for the invitation, I met many colleagues with whom I spoke earlier, I got acquainted with several players of the Russian market, and among them were the organizers of major events, representatives of agencies, ticketing companies.
A very worthy event where you need to participate both to ticket operators and content providers. At such forums people exchange experiences, discuss ideas that are then being picked up, transformed into undertakings, and the industry essentially lives on.
The ITY is an annual guide to the global live entertainment ticketing business. It provides detailed analysis and insight for the live entertainment ticketing business in key territories around the world. The ITY was established by IQ in response to a lack of available data about the vibrant ticketing business. As with previous editions, the 2018 book includes profiles on the ticketing sector in more than 40 countries. Each national profile examines the main primary ticketing companies, secondary ticketing operations, distribution of sales, typical taxes and charges and cultural traits unique to each country.
The fourth edition of the International Ticketing Yearbook (ITY) is available online here.
